Real Wedding:: KK & Scotty / Grand View Lodge, Nisswa, MN {part one}

When I think back to KK & Scotty's wedding, a huge smile deepens my face, and I instantly deeply miss that girl. {KK, we must get coffee soon!}
KK is a ball of fun, mixed with a huge heart, and creative to the core.
The first time I met her she told me she wanted a wedding that reflected the movie Big Fish. I was instantly excited as this was out of the box, and just plain FUN. She wanted elements that were not the norm, a bit circus in nature, mixed with a backyard feeling that never strayed from elegance.
The results were mind blowing, and seriously-Martha-this wedding could be featured on the front of your next magazine. 
I do not exaggerate
So, you know, hook a girl up! :)
KK and I worked very closely in the details of this wedding, as it was full service. It was a joy to help create this day for her, and see the delight reflected in her eyes as she watched the day unfold. One of my favorite moments is when she grabbed me at the end of the day, and told me this day was beyond what she even created in her mind. Nothing fills a planners heart than that. When we hear that, all the hard work and sweat melt away, and we are on a permanent high. So, KK-thank you. Thank you for being so amazing, so sweet, so welcoming into your family, and becoming a friend. I love you!
Because there are so many amazing details to this wedding, today I will feature the first part of the day. 

Believe me, your mind will be blown.

KK has a deep love for dogs.
Dani of Studio Fleurette is simply one of the best florists I know. hands down.
KK, it was a hot & slightly muggy day but look at how radiant you are. Love, Love!
I LOVED all their paper goods!!
A boat ride at the end of the ceremony? well, of course!

The vendors that put in the work to making this day run so smoothly are amazing. These three I want to make note of today, with more in the next post!
Maggie with Grand View Lodge went above & beyond. Every request we threw at her she handled with ease and love. I was super impressed with the work ethic and love that the Grand View put into the day.
Dani with Studio Fleurette blew me away. Our florist ended up quitting 10 days before the wedding, and I called Dani in a pinch. She not only jumped on with all of her heart, but she handled it all with grace. The flowers were so beautiful and perfected the vision. Brides, call her. There will simply be no regret!
Whitney with Laura Ivanova Photography was fun and professional to work with. The day was hot, and there were many details and elements to capture. She handled it all without a blink, and is a lot of fun to work with too. 

Details to come later in the week!

Happy Monday sweet friends!
xo, E.
